clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in aug
it benghazi gate. the question of what the obama administration knew you about the true nature of the assault that killed our ambassador chris stevens and the three other brave americans and when they knew it and consider the possibility that this unfolding scandal will become a serious distraction for the president as he tries to capitalize on rival mitt romney's own week be from hell including mr. romney's comment about the 47% who don't pay any income tax and who therefore will never vote for him, the release this weekend of the governor's 2011 tax returns and the widespread feeling in the mainstream media at least that governor romney is losing this race. >> you are the c.e.o. of this campaign. a lot of republicans would like to know, a lot of your doan hes would like to know how do you turn this thing around. you have a little more than six weeks. what do you do? >> well, it it doesn't need a turnaround. we a campaign tied with an incumbent president of the united states. >> geraldo: mr. romney is right about the national polls showle him tied with the incumbent president. with six weeks
this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in august warning americans not to travel there, telling them there is probably bombings and a assassinations. >> paul: we also know that they called for the revenge against the united states for a killing by a terrorist by a drone attack. they had ample warning. did they fall down on the job? >> it seems like there were a number of cascade go failures. it's fair to say it was probably a serious mistake for the ambassador stevens to go to benghazi. it was a serious mistake for them to have a marine detachment at our facility in benghazi. i'll say this for stevens. he was a brave guy. he was involved in a transition and wanted to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya
received a warning three days before the benghazi attack that killed an aa bagsdor, two navy seals and others. now, tonight there is another story that we know the mainstream media will not touch, and that's this. the daily caller got his hands on dozens of e-mails between the justice department officials and some of their staffers at media matters. explosive investigation reveals that the department of justice at media matters conspired together to spin stories and try to discredit news outlets, such as fox news, for accurately reporting about eric holder and his agency. joining me now is fox news contributors. so we have benghazi, we have three days warning, the obama administration did nothing. they had no beefed-up security on the anniversary of 9/11. we have a president, according to the libyan president, that's lying to the american people about all this and whether it's preplanned. $6 trillion in debt. fewer americans working. and what and the media want to talk about? when romney speaks out about our embassy being breached, our flag being burned and an al-qaeda flag being h
sources tell fox the former detainee with ties to al qaeda may have led the assault in benghazi. this is the only picture we have ever had of him. he reportedly went tree from guantanamo bay in 2007 when the agreement that muammar qaddafi would keep him locked up. clearly that didn't happen. >>reporter: beside the attacks on benghazi, we first reported on this a week ago, there were two assessments indicating that conditions on the ground in eastern libya were deteriorating. this report by the defense department and the library of congress, specifically mentioned that detainee, sufyan ben qumu, has the leading edge of al qaeda's footprint reading that the senior leadership is seeking a clandestine network in libya that could destabilize the government or offer logistical support to al qaeda's activists in north africa. >> how good of a spy do you have to be to realize that part of libya is unstable? how many attacks do you have to have on the consulate and ambassador before you realize it is dangerous? >>reporter: we reported on monday this was a separate assessment by the c.i.a
praised. >> the people of benghazi sent this message loudly and clearly on friday when they forcefully rejected the extremists in their midst and reclaimed the honor and dignity of a courageous city. >>shepard: there are still big questions as to whether the libyan government has the muscle to get the army, rather, the militias under control. on top of that, the government relies on the militias for security after the fall of muammar qaddafi. >>reporter: it is less than three hours for the rogue militias to disband and government officials telling me it is going better-than-expected and the libyan security forces are taking the place of militants at bases here in tripoli and across the country. in benghazi, two militias under nominal government control were replaced by military officers. in benghazi, which was the scene of the dramatic protest and attack aimed at militants over the weekend, another protest, today, against a brigade thought responsible for a recent killing. some experts say this is a tactical withdrawal by the militia and the same government official indicated to me the
the attack on the consulate in benghazi, he was ganged up on on the media and coordinated questions in the press conference after. yet, after the 60 minutes interview nothing. >> a few words from governor romney he probably wished he could take back a little bit, were a week's worth of news the libya statement. the bumps in the road comment went by pretty much unnoticed takes me back to another occasion where u.s. president dealing with a tragedy in the middle east use add sort of awkward metaphor, president reagan in the wake of the beirut bombing when the marines were killed in the barracks and takes time to fix are kitchen-- an awkward statement, not minimizing the deaths of those marines. just like president obama was not minimizing the deaths of the diplomates and terrible news and president reagan was-- but with president obama went right past. big news coming out of this whole thing, muhammad morrissy, our alleged ally in egypt, sort of siding with the bad guys there and that of course doesn't -- that is a bump in the road going forward, tragedy. >> right. >> kirsten, selecti

. >> the reason we call it benghazi-gate it contains the grim prospect that the administration knew or should have known. this is the one cancer on the presidency. dare i say that. >> we have been lied to. we flat out have been lied to. everybody with two eyes and i.q. above plant life understands that what happened in egypt and what happened in libya was not some spontaneous reak to a stupid 13-minute video on youtube. richard nixon was forced out of office because he lied. because he covered some stuff up. i will be blunt and tell you this. nobody died in watergate. we have people dead because of this and there are questions to be answered. >> andrea: it's not just republicans concerned about this. just yesterday, senate democrats also started demanding answers from the administration. greg, we're 17 days out since we learned this was a terror attack. even leon panetta said this was a terror attack. but nothing from the commander-in-chief. shouldn't he have been honest the first place? >> greg: this is confusing to me. the response is let's coordinate it, with an engineering major. if he knew it
violence and more attacks against u.s. diplomats, alluding to the attacks in benghazi that killed four people. there is higher level of security around the u.s. embassy as local media reported there was credible threat against the embassy. hundred yards to my left is one of roads leading down to the embassy compound. that has 18-foot tall concrete blocks blocking the road so no trucks or cars or for that matter person can get anyway near the embassy. >> gregg: our viewers remember the coverage of the original arab spring. you were right there in the middle of it. now, so many months later, juxtaposed the scenes and explain the change in attitude you have witnessed? >> it has been a change. 18 months, people were chanting freedom. they told you were american and how much they loved the american ideal. now, they are chanting death to america. it's a different crowd and much less educated and much harder line islamic. when incited by this movie a lot of people live on less than $2 a day. these aren't people going on youtube watching a video and coming down to protest. these are people who
correspondent arwa damon in benghazi. also joining us david ignatius, the columnist for "the washington post." david, let me start with you. you have some information, fascinating and intriguing information that the attack on the consulate may have been linked to al qaeda operatives in libya as a revenge plot. what exactly are you hearing? >> wolf, i heard from a source who has good sources on the ground in the libyan underground that the talk there was that the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed our ambassador stevens on september 11 last week was conceived as by the people who did it, an act of revenge to retaliate for the drone attack that killed a key al qaeda operative and planner. i ran that yesterday by a u.s. intelligence official who said that although some of the elements that i'd heard did not check out that they had heard the same thing. they'd heard this talk of revenge for the killing as a motive for the attack on the consulate in benghazi. so the u.s. government has been hearing the same thing that i picked up from my source. >> that would seem to suggest, david, i'm goi
happened when that mob overran the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans were killed, including the u.s. ambassador. charlie d'agata has been piecing this story together in benghazi. >> reporter: this cell phone video was shot in the chaotic hours after the consulate was attacked and ambassador chris stevens died. even in the darkness, you can see that some libyans tried to save his life, carrying the body outside to safety. what you don't see is any of the ambassador's american security team. and it's still unclear how they became separated. benghazi resident fahad al bakoush shot the video. he told us he heard somebody yell "there's a body, a foreigner." but bakoush said nobody recognized the ambassador. >> ( translated ): god is great, he's alive, he's alive. >> reporter: bakoush said he didn't see bruising or bleeding but the ambassador's face was red and his lips were black. he told us they tried to find a doctor in the crowd but there was none. then he helped get the ambassador to the hospital. as the attack continued on the consulate, a libyan security official told us he
reported this. >> u.s. officials say the benghazi attack was too sophisticated to be spontaneous. >> cenk: all right. government officials saying that. but on september 16th susan rice went on talk shows and had a different story, watch. >> soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in benghazi. we believe it looks like extremist elements individuals joined in testify that fort with heavy weapons, and it spun from there into something much much more violent. >> cenk: so she appears to be saying not necessarily a terrorist attack. it spun out of control. that looked questionable right from the get-go and jay carney on september 20th came out and said it is i think, self-evident up in smoke? a catastrophically embarrassing way. to lose an entire consulate, and basically be run out of town and we have learned that there were at least two dozen cia agents also in benghazi. so there was a huge loss of our intelligence out there as well. so those two things are the main reason why i think they have been trying to paper it over. and the final point, a
saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. >> that's the first we learned about exactly what stevens was doing in benghazi, a city the u.s. had been warned was not safe. and the president continued in his speech vowing to find the killers. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> relentless in tracking down the killers, and bringing them to justice. it's a promise. but does that promise add up? it has been 14 days since the american ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed. and we still don't know why, and we still don't know who did it. and what we do know, from our reporting here at cnn, is this. in terms of a warning, three days before stevens was killed, th
intelligence on the uprising in benghazi was spontaneous. but the house intelligence committee chairman mike ronnellers said today, it's too early to tell. president obama has come under intense scrutiny over his handling of the attack. some question whether he should have offered more support in the arab spring and taken a firmer stand against extremist and done more to enhance security in the region. all of these issues very del gaiticate in the campaign for the white house and the president. an official in new york said that mitt romney should have waited to comment on benghazi. but he is no fan of president obama's. >> president obam's's policy has been confusing and mis guided. from the day he started his apology tour, when he was, no matter what anybody says, apologizing to the world. >> reporter: the fbi conducting the ongoing investigation of the attacks in cairo and benghazi. >> thank you. >> u.s. defense secretary leon panetta saying that the turmoil raging across the world is likely to continue into the days ahead. what is the next step for the u.s. government and world leaders? s
